Get the F&*k Over Yourself and Succeed Already
Ugh, I’m having one of those days. Brain is actively fighting against being useful. Creativity feels stumped. All of my ideas for writing today – and I have to write each day, to not write is like not BREATHING – are basically pure and utter boring drivel.
I feel like I’m underwater … like there’s so much to do today that there’s no point starting … frozen in overwhelm and I just want to smash some more espresso and go hit the gym or something.
Which I will. But first –
Time to get over myself warrior princess!
Because if there’s one thing I’ve learned about what it REALLY took to breakthrough to success, it’s that success does not give a shit about how you feel, about whether or not you’re motivated, about whether or not you have time, about whether or not you know how or indeed about ANYTHING except whether or not you are showing up and doing the work. And the results formula? Is VERY very simple –
Don’t show up and do the work, day in and day out, week in and week out, month in and month out, year in and year out?
No success for you!
On the other hand –
Of every week.
For the whole month.
And the entire year.
Repeat and repeat and repeat!
You WILL make it.
But here’s where we get it so wrong –
We’re tired, so we take a little rest.
We’ve done so much and pushed so hard, so we slow down.
We’re a little overwhelmed with all that we COULD be doing, and not quite sure where to start or what REALLY matters today (or indeed at all!) so we flounder around reading boring crap about boring people on Facebook.
And we tell ourselves –
I’ll get to it tomorrow.
You can only do so much, right?
Maybe I should get some healing done around this, I feel so stuck.
[pq]Time to harden up warrior princess. You want this life, all of it, totally on your terms and now if not sooner?[/pq]
Then stop working on yourself.
Stop trying to figure shit out.
Stop trying to get freaking ORGANISED! (Now THERE’S a major time-waster often disguised as taking actual action!)
STOP DICTATING YOUR DESTINY WITH YOUR EMOTIONS.
You want the OUTCOME? Then you do the work.
In this case, no. NOT the inner work.
The actual work of putting yourself out there every day.
Of getting your message into the world every day.
Of offering to help people every day.
Of promoting your stuff every day.
Of reaching out to new people and inviting them into your tribe.
You want easy, you want reassurance that it’s all going to just be okay even though you didn’t do what you said you would, you want agreement that yes maybe you first need to deal with your ‘stuff’ so that you’re aligned to taking action?
You can take it easy …
Tell yourself it’s fine to break your own promises to YOU …
Take ALL the time you need for inner work so that one day (surely!) you’ll be ready for mother-freaking SERIOUS outer work …
Totally up to you.
But I can tell you from experience –
I’ve been there, got the t-shirt, took the photo and it ain’t all it’s cracked up to be.
Namely, approaching business – and life – that way is a FABULOUS way to remain mired in average. If you’re LUCKY. What’s more likely to happen is you find your wealth and success radar going DOWN.
For me, shockingly, what WORKED when it came to breaking through to TRUE success, was taking action ‘even though’.
Even though I was still seeking total alignment in my message and voice –
Even though there was SO much to do that it was easier to do nothing at all or to do ‘pretend’ busy activities –
Even though I’d already taken SO much action and surely I should be there now! *stamps foot*
Even though by GOD I had a lot of inner shit to sort out and deal with –
Even though a lot of the time I did NOT wake up feeling raring to go and pumped about what I was doing –
Because what I found, shockingly, is that when you take imperfect action and you just SHOW UP EVERY DAY, there’s still time to deal with your inner shit. To “work” on yourself. To bury your head in pointless social media. To let minutes of your life drain away, if that’s what you really wanna do.
There’s still PLENTY of time left to fuck around and live a life of mediocre fulfilment.
There’s always time for THAT.
But there will NOT always be plenty of time left to do what you said you would, to bring those one day dreams into life, to become the person you KNOW you’re meant to be.
There’s time NOW, for sure.
But only if you START now.
Not ready, not sure, don’t know exactly WHERE to start? Congratulations! Join the club of EVERY SINGLE SUCCESSFUL PERSON OUT THERE.
And get the hell over yourself and do it anyway.
After all –
Life is Now. Press Play.
